Hereford Exhibitors Take Note

Hereford exhibitors please make sure that all cattle planning to show at national shows are registered. Any entry that is pending or not registered 30 days prior to a national show will be scratched and not allowed to show. Also if you intend to have expected progeny differences (EPDs) printed in the show program, please make sure you are a compliant and a Whole Herd TPR breeder as EPDs will not be added to any animal upon arrival at the show. We appreciate your cooperation with getting all show animals registered 30 days prior to the show and any EPD problems worked out ahead of time.

To order the official AHA show vests visit the Shop Hereford Web site. The show vests are $30 and we appreciate all exhibitors wearing the official showring attire.

All cattle must have an EID tag in order to show at a national Hereford show. Visit to download an order form. All tags will be ordered in increments of 10 and cattle that have tags will be scanned at the stalls and will avoid standing in long lines at the chute. Those without EID tags will be tagged when cattle are checked in and charged $3 per tag.
